Change First Slide Number

How to change the starting slide number in PowerPoint? PPT Productivity's Manage Slide Number feature makes it easy! To change the starting number in your presentation, simply nominate your preferred starting number using the Slide Numbers and Totals feature.

PPT Productivity makes it easy to change the nominated starting slide number for your presentation. For example if you prefer to exclude slide numbers from the title page and make the first content page slide 1, you can easily do this by setting Number Slides from to 0. You can also select to show or hide numbering on the title slide, by deselecting the Show on title slides checkbox.

You can use this feature to for presentations that will be collated after printing, for example RFPs or proposal responses for business development. For example, update the Slide number/ totals format option # of ## to display Section 2, Page 1 of 30.

Productivity Tip

When you deselect the Show on Title Slides checkbox, this will remove slide numbering from any slide in your presentation that uses the Title Slide layout. Refer to our Slide numbering help guide if you have used the Title slide layout in the content of your presentation.
